WordPress got its start as a blogging platform over a decade ago, but it’s grown into a full-blown CMS (content management system) since then.

I got my start with WordPress within the first couple of years after it got started. I used it for blogging, but as its capabilities grew, I started using it for more things, and even sites that didn’t have blogs at all.

Now, there’s almost no limit to what you can do if you learn WordPress (beyond the basics of posting content). You can create ecommerce sites, event sites, small business sites, big business sites, directories, and almost anything else you can think of. And it’s still great for blogs, too!

If you’re looking for a little inspiration before tackling your next (or first!) WordPress project, check out these 43 sites!

Agency Sites

WordPress is super popular among design agencies, and not just for their clients’ sites. It’s also a favorite choice for their own websites. Whether it’s a simple portfolio for a web designer or a full-blown corporate site for a digital agency handling everything from web development to marketing, WordPress is a very common choice to power agency sites.
